JCPenney Has Reactivated Apple Pay in All Retail Locations

United States-based department store chain JCPenney has reactivated contactless payments options in its stores, including, of course, Apple Pay.

A JCPenney support employee broke the news on Twitter. The June 13 tweet, a reply to a “shame on you” tweet from a customer of the retail chain, said the would once more begin accepting Apple Pay again in-store on June 19th. Since it’s now the 27th, you should once again be able to use your Apple Watch or iPhone to pay for your purchases at checkout in JCPenney retail locations.


JCPenney earlier this year stopped accepting contactless payments due to an April 13 deadline from Visa for retiring legacy magnetic stripe contactless technology in favor of EMV technology. At the time, the retail chain did not offer a reason for pulling support, or when it might be reinstated.


Until they announced the termination of the contactless payment support, JCPenney had offered Apple Pay as a payment option since 2015.
